It had to happen. Tom McLean reports:
Right now, there are about a dozen or so auctions up on eBay for Comic-Con passes. Prices on completed auctions show people willing to pay more than $100 for a sold-out one-day Saturday pass that originally sold for $35. Four-day passes, which originally cost $75 each and have been sold out for weeks, are going for as much as $300 each. Plus, there’s this solicit right here in the comments section of this very blog.
However, these may in fact be counterfeit or unusable confirmation letters.
Even with the scalping, we’ve been saying for some time that $75 is wayyyyyyyyyy too low for a FOUR DAY pass to the biggest show biz show of the year. It will be interesting to see what the market will bear, especially after the celebrity guests are announced.
